The world elite failed at saying Iran is getting Nuclear weapons. The last Iranian president was their only ammo to scare the American people. The Syrian rebels are failing to beat the Syrian government and the Chemical weapon story is over. Iran will not have a revolution because Iran has been preparing for an attack for years. The world elite are almost out of cards for starting WW3. The last card is a False Flag Terrorist attack as big or bigger than 9/11.

An uneducated but understandable emotional response. Obama is a puppet, controlled by the very same people who controlled Bush. Nobody can get to be president of the US without the full approval and funding of the people who are benefiting from US imperialism and aggression.


I dont think this is uneducated at all. Its very educated. the US has been waging war against foreign countries for decades in pursuit of its own sick agenda. maybe anyone who thinks this is uneducated needs to do their research, read the history of their country.

Memo to the Muslim Brotherhood: you can have an Islamic state or a democracy. You cannot have both. (This is in accordance with Sharia Law.)

As an American I call for justice for Iran, compensation for wrongful death, injury, destruction of property, and theft of natural resources that resulted from from the US sponsored 1953 coup in Iran. There is no rationale in repeating such bitter experiences. The US should remove sanctions against Iran that take hostage basic human needs of Iranians, such as those of more vulnerable groups such as children, the sick and the elderly. Specifically, monetary sanctions against Iran should be lifted since they directly conflict with permitted trade in humanitarian needs such as food and medicine.

The story is called: The boy who cried wolf.


Arrow Time 25.09.2013 17:29

A shepherd boy repeatedly tricks nearby villagers into thinking a wolf is attacking his flock. When a wolf actually does appear, the villagers do not trust the boy's cries for help, and the flock is destroyed. The moral at of the story states that it shows that this is how liars are rewarded even if they tell the truth, no one believes them.

By World he means Israel, only that gives sence.
As he can realy speak for Israel, being their man, unlike World's.

No w, world neads much more Israel to solve it's aggressivity, mixed with fear. As Italians say: the honest doesn't have fear.

well said! in fact, the current US drama about Syria i.e., episode since June 2013 is all about distracting people from real issues, the one Brazilian President mentioned in her speech.
No we are not listening your phone calls.....


I think so too, Mark. Wag the dog, the usual strategy to divert attention from a big scandal.

Why Would US Government Waste Money On Watching you when your breaking no Law or no danger to anyone? US Government on the other hand breaking International Laws. Obama caught sending Syrian rebels advanced navy seal sniper rifles.
Since Putin and China are prepared to destroy the US and Israel to protect Syria, there will hopefully be peace.


For the US government it is afraid of its own people. Afraid that if it is not keeping tabs on you and pick up some dirt if at all possible you might still have a voice and use it to call out its crimes.

A hearty "Da" to the Rooskie Vodka. One way to help us try and forget our shame for being Americans with an out of control (except control by the oiligarchy), run amok government that no longer resembles the one that our founding fathers gave us. And the Matrix here is strong - religious zealots and media lazy morons are behind every rock & rill. With the corporations controlling our elections there will be no hope of reform at the ballot box. Outside of another bloody revolution, it's 1984.


Amen, brother!
